The Foo Fighters are the latest rock stars taking aim at “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy. In a new interview, Dave Grohl said that Murphy shouldn’t complain when bands don’t want to include their music on his hit Fox show.
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing ‘Glee,’” Grohl told The Hollywood Reporter. “And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f—ing show. … F— that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee.’ … I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing.”
The band’s frontman isn’t the only Fighter who isn’t into the show. Drummer Taylor Hawkins feels the same as his bandmate.
“The ‘Glee’ guy, what a f—ing jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns N’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f—ing musicals. It’s worse than “Grease.” ‘ Then [Murphy's] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed-up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f—ing do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little a–holes.’ And it’s just like, dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee,’ ” Hawkins said. “Me included. … Yeah, f— that sh–.”
